Negation in sentence above

Would "Nous ne  reconnaissons pas vous" be an acceptable alternative to "Nous ne vous reconnaissons pas" ? Why is ne..pas wrapped around two words in your sentence?

Hi Andrea, 

I am afraid not.

This is to do with the position of the object pronoun 'vous' which precedes the verb in Fench.

Take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson which will give you further examples -

Hope this helps!
